This product is to be fed only to the animal species as directed on this label. Follow these management practices:

  1. Do not allow animals to run out of feed.
  2. When making a ration change, allow 7-10 days for animals to adjust to the new ration.
  3. Provide adequate feeder space for each animal. Feeders should be well protected and well managed to prevent feed from becoming wet and molding. Do not allow fines to accumulate in feed trough. Never allow the feeder to run empty or to develop flow problems.
  4. Fermented feeds (high moisture grains and silages) should be limited to 10% of the diet for young or stressed cattle.
  5. Stressed cattle should be placed in clean, uncrowded environments.
  6. Provide salt free choice.
  7. Provide fresh, clean water near the feeding area.
  8. In groups of cattle, there are certain animals that experience chronic bloat or other digestive disturbances and consequently, are poor performers. In addition, excess feed consumption, severe weather changes resulting in erratic feed consumptions and poorly managed feeding practices can increase the incidence of bloat in all cattle. If bloat occurs, please review feed management practices.

CAUTION:
Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or infested
feed to animals as it may cause illness, performance loss or death.
